Sandbox Party Convention is a good opportunity for parents
To the Editor,
I am writing to inform my neighbors of a wonderful (and free) opportunity to connect with local parents and improve the lives of all of our children: The Sandbox Party Convention. On Aug. 26, the Great Start Collaborative of Lenawee County will be heading to Lansing to join over 50 other Great Start groups and 70 parent coalitions for a day of education, entertainment, and advocacy. The Sandbox Party Convention is a non-partisan event, committed to promoting the idea that early childhood education is crucial to the development of a healthy, happy, and prosperous future for Michigan. The event will include live performances, mock elections for children, speeches by athletes, business leaders, and celebrities, and more. The gubernatorial candidates have been invited to share their views and to learn about what voters think regarding early childhood education.
Chartered buses will leave from the Adrian Walmart at 11:05 a.m, LISD Vo-Tech at 11:10 a.m., Tecumseh Pamida at 11:20 a.m., and Better Living Homes on US 127 at 11:20 a.m. Box lunches will be provided on the bus. For those who will be driving to the event, it will take place from 1-4 p.m. at Breslin Student Event Center, One Birch Road, East Lansing. Visit www.lenaweegreatstart.org for details and registration.
Families with their children are strongly encouraged to attend!
